About us


Situated on one of the world’s most beautiful mountain passes, Clouds Wine and Guest Estate is a small boutique hotel on top of Helshoogte pass. This private estate is a working farm that produces its own wines. It also offers premium accommodation that blends designer luxury with all the mod-cons. A stylish destination surrounded by incredible views, a stay at Clouds Hotel & Villas is difficult to forget.

The estate came to pass because a Dutch couple holidayed in South Africa back in the year 2000, and fell in love with the wine, the food, the landscape and the historical connections with their homeland… Great lovers of wine and good design, the couple dreamed of owning their own wine farm. A dream that finally came true when they were able to purchase a modest estate with vineyards, accommodation and extraordinary views.  

They then set about remodeling the old guesthouse into a contemporary hotel that cleverly opened up to the views. They also landscaped the grounds, and brought in Dutch designer pieces and South African art for the interiors. And voila, Clouds as we know it today was born!
